    Indiana Might Struggle in March by

    By Josh Schoch columnist from the Bleacher Report writes this:

    After returning all five starters from last year’s Sweet 16
    team and bringing in one of the top recruiting classes in the country,
    we expected Indiana to be the nation’s best team.

    However, we now know that this is not the best team in the country. We also know that it won’t win it all.

    The team has too many weaknesses that can be easily exploited, and I have not been impressed.

    If the season ended today, I wouldn’t even put this team past the Sweet 16.

    Never pay any attention to BleacherReport. They are the biggest joke of a sports website out there.

    I cant say I am totally surprised with Butler beating the Hoosiers. Has anybody watched Butler the last three years? Butler has beat many higher ranked and much more talented teams the last few years. Brad Stevens is a basketball genius. This Hoosier team is very talented but still lacks the mental toughness of a really great team. CTC needs to get it figured out and quick. The B1G is gonna be ruthless.

    I’m not concerned, nor should anyone on this site be concerned, with Josh Schoch’s “expert” opinion.
